Climate of Fear (and loathing it)

Things like this make me upset.

John, Cindy and I were at the Ballard Locks in March. We took lots and lots of pictures. John was taking pictures of the railroad bridget in motion. We took pictures of the construction project on the lock. No one questioned us.

That sort of thing scares me, and makes me ashamed to be American. I'm tempted to be flip and threaten to move to Canada (which isn't all that unrealistic for me), but I'm afraid that by leaving, I'll just make it easier to harass those left behind. Ugh.

I don't even understand why the guy got questioned. Am I missing something? Wasn't he just taking pictures of a bridge? Is that bad?

He's "arab looking".

His picture is the last one in the statement.

Oh my god, you're right! I only read the first page.

This is really disturbing.
